Granville Street Bridge
Vancouver, BC V6H 3R9
+1 604 683 2000 (Tourist Information)
Easily one of the oldest bridges in Vancouver, the Granville Street Bridge is a major link to the the city's nerve center spanning Downtown, Gastown and West End. First opened in 1889, the bridge has undergone several changes including a widening project and more recently, a major reconstruction project to cope with the rigors of the city's burgeoning growth. The bridge crosses over from central Vancouver passing Granville Island and False Creek into the city's hub of activity. While the bridge today, remains a largely functional affair, overshadowed by its larger and comely cousins like the Lions Gate Bridge, it remains part of the city's rich development history worth remembering.
